Hickling Bowls Club plays in the Norfolk 3-wood county tournament and in the Broadland and North Walsham leagues. We also play in cup matches with other teams in the county and have a singles and pairs competition within the club. This year we also held an in-house cup tournament called the September Cup - played between four blocks of four players. That was won by the 'Suffolk' team of Brian Aldridge, Doreen Beales, Chris Watkins and Captain Laurence Beales.
Hickling came top of the North Walsham Triples league this year, edging ahead of North Walsham New Road and Coltishall to take the title. We fared less well in the Norfolk County 3-wood leagues with the A team coming halfway down the table and the B team second from bottom. We were fourth in Division 1 of the Broadland League. You can see where we came in the leagues in the 2022 season by scrolling down the page.
In the In-House League, the Bees were the top team, with 27 points and a shot difference of 38, ahead of the Hornets in second place.
For comparison, this is how Hickling did in the 2022 season.
